“Perfect Countryside Retreat”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

This lovely B&B feels perfectly secluded and is surrounded by beautiful rolling hills but is also only 5-10 minutes drive away from Ruthin with several choices for a good dinner.

Our hosts were friendly, made us feel at ease and provided suggestions of places we could visit that were spot-on. They were happy to help in any way they could and it was a real pleasure chatting with them.

The room and bathroom were spacious, beautifully decorated and spotless.

The breakfast room had a communal table (which some people may not like) but we loved being able to watch the woodpeckers feed right in front of the window. Breakfast was wonderful with homemade bread and jam, fresh fruits, cereal and full english breakfast.

We loved the charming cottage, the beautiful setting and really enjoyed our stay.

A warm welcome awaits from Dave and Marylin (and Molly the cat - and assorted chickens). Rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Mein hosts were quite happy to recommend places to eat or visit - useful if you don't know the area. Breakfasts include freshly laid eggs and home made jams. Not easy to find but worth the effort. The Cross Keys does good standard pub food, even if the portions are a bit challenging. For a (pricey) blowout try the restaurant meals in the Ruthin Castel hotel.

From the moment we arrived Dave and Marilyn ensured that our stay in their home was everything we could want. Our room with lovely views of the garden and the Welsh hills beyond was very comfortable with a good bathroom . We were woken from a peaceful night's sleep by the smell of homemade bread drifting up the stairs. Breakfast was excellent with a good range of fresh and homemade local produce. We wished we could have stayed longer but will certainly return.

Room Tip: Ask for the largest one.

My partner and I have just spent a wonderful weekend at Plas Efenechtyd. The cottage is beautiful and in a fabulous location. Our room was small but well equipped and very clean. The only downside, for us, was the communal breakfasting arrangements. We like to take our time over breakfast in a private, comfortable atmosphere and are not keen on being 'thrust' upon strangers first thing in the morning. Although our fellow guests were chatty, we prefer to be on our own at breakfast. Had we known in advance about the breakfast arrangements, we would have booked alternative accommodation. The dining room is easily large enough to accommodate 4 or 5 smaller tables.

On the plus side, Dave and Marilyn were the perfect hosts - warm and welcoming and very knowledgeable with regard to the local area and facilities.

I have just spent three nights at Plas Efenechtyd with two old friends from Michigan and found the accommodation excellent. The rooms were comfortable and warm, the breakfast was good with in particular their own free range eggs, home made jam and marmalade, and excellent bread. Dave and Marilyn are very friendly and welcoming.

My husband, daughter and I have stayed with Dave and Marilyn 4 times in the last 3 years and every time we go we have a wonderful time. It's such a lovely place and Dave and Marilyn couldn't be friendlier or more accomodating. The food is always fresh, beautifully prepared and cooked to perfection. It is very much out of the way but this really appeals and to us. If you fancy really getting away from city life and having a relaxing weekend or week away, then I can't recommend Pas Efenechtyd highly enough!
